Well, it ain't no Vent Noir!

The Steyr Clubman was about the lowest-end "10 speed" ever exported to the U.S. from Austria. (Some of the early Sears Free Spirits are in the same class.) The frame is plain carbon steel, and most of the components are comparable to those of the Peugeot UO-8. The advantage of a Clubman over a UO-8 is the English/ISO bottom bracket.

The Clubman had a couple of really cheesy features, such as full-length cable housing on the derailleur cables.
